    We have the intellect to imagine the finality of our own demise but do not have the sophistication to overcome our survival instinct and accept it.
    Solution? Magical thinking and childish promises of everlasting life.
    Ergo, religion.

    rac·ist
    rāsəst/noun
    a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
    Ask yourself honestly if this describes what you believe to be true.
    If the answer is yes, you are a racist.

    LOL. Can't seriously believe that you said that, let alone believe it.

    Sure I dissected a cat and all that, but that has zero to do with your chagrin. The existence of the Big Bang Theory refutes your assertion. Etiology is the backbone of particle physics. To suggest that those scientists are not out to disprove a creator is beyond rational. That you are grounding you argument in biology of all things is a non-starter anyway. Even theoretical physicist have been obsessed with filling in the BBT gap to explain away the laws of thermodynamics not being laws because of their failure to explain the first reaction and first particle, so they have come up with the theories that the universe has no beginning at all.
